There’s nothing quite like the romantic elegance of a traditional wedding. Tara and Justin were married on a beautiful November day at the iconic Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine. The bride wore an A-line gown by Justin Alexander boasting scalloped lace over pale golden underlay. Her large ivory, champagne and blush bouquet, designed by Bonnie Melin of Ruby Reds Floral & Garden, dripped with hydrangeas and roses. Bridesmaids attended with bouquets of burgundy dahlias, ivory hydrangeas and roses, perfectly complimenting floor-length merlot dresses by Alfred Angelo. Justin and his groomsmen were handsome in Black tuxedos by Vera Wang. Following the ‘I dos’ guests enjoyed a trolley tour of St. Augustine before a cocktail hour and reception at popular St. Augustine wedding venue The Casa Monica Resort & Spa. The exquisite work of Francesca Cooper of The Eventful Gals and the brides many talented vendors were evident in the elegance of the reception celebration. From the moment the new Mr. and Mrs., were introduced to the room, the party started and didn’t let up. A seated meal followed by a four-tiered multi-flavored wedding cake left guests talking for months after the affair, while David Hanscom of Y? Entertainment played just the right tunes as the celebration shifted to the dance floor. From the first dance to the bouquet and garter-toss, it was a day of romance and fun, a genuine party perfectly suited for a happily ever after. Alison Neumark of St. Augustine wedding photographers Life and Love Studios captured every romantic moment and detail of Tara and Justin’s special day.
